DILG provides P101 M aid to former rebels
by DILG release

The Department of the Interior and Local Government has provided a total of P101.67 million assistance to 1,573 former rebels for the past two years under its Comprehensive Local Integration Program (CLIP).

CLIP is the National Reintegration Program for the New People’s Army aimed at achieving permanent and peaceful closure of the armed conflict with a non-state group.

“The program has brought former rebels back into society with their families as productive, peace-loving, and law-abiding citizens,” said DILG Sec. Ismael ‘Mike’ D. Sueno.

Under the program, an immediate assistance amounting to P15,000 is given to a former rebel for mobilization expenses while his/her enrolment in the program is being processed. Aside from that, P50,000 livelihood assistance is also given to each former rebel.

A receiving unit such as a local government unit or Philippine National Police is given P7,000 reintegration assistance to help defray the board and lodging of each former rebel in their custody. It also covers other incidental expenses that may be incurred while processing requirements, such as birth certificate and identification card which are needed to get certificate from the Armed Forces of the Philippines and Philippine National Police Intelligence Committee, which certifies that an individual is a member of the NPA and is eligible to be enrolled in the CLIP.

This year, Sueno calls on rebels to be partners for real change by supporting Duterte administration’s peace efforts with the Communist Party of the Philippines/NPA/National Democratic Front.

“The President and the entire government genuinely wish to put an end to one of the world’s longest running insurgencies. Let’s talk and work together for a just and enduring peace this year and beyond,” he said.
